Storyline

Flip the Frog jumps happily from lily pad to lily pad, crossing the pond in order to get to an outdoor nightclub in the forest. Flip is the featured performer, and the crowd of critters is happy to see him. As the insect orchestra plays below, Flip dances on a tree stump. Later, he plays the piano as a mouse accompanies him on the violin. The piano cries during a sad song, and Flip has to blow its nose. Flip offends his instrument by caressing its leg with a bit too much familiarity. The piano kicks Flip, and the frog retaliates by punching the keys as he plays. Flip's violent performance leads to a crashing finish. Written by J. Spurlin

All Singing And Dancing.....And Color, Too, As Flip Makes Debut
30 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an historic "Flip The Frog" cartoon in that it was his first. Flip and his insect and animal friends just dance and sing all day. This might bore the heck out of many people today, but I didn't mind it because I like tap dancing and Flip did two innovative tap numbers.

The only laugh I got was when Flip and the piano went at it. After singing a sad song, the piano started crying and Flip blew its nose. (Hey, it's a cartoon, where anything can happen!). Then the two get mad at each other and duke it out.

At the end of the cartoon, it mentions this is a "sound and color" cartoon. That was a big deal back in 1930, on both counts.

This was the first cartoon in a series of old ones in a DVD called "Cartoons That Time Forget: The UB Iwerks Collection Vol. 1."
